    Default Zags - United as One

    From Gonzaga Basketball:

    SPOKANE, Wash. – Top-ranked Gonzaga men's basketball will wear badges on their uniforms that showcases the team's pledge to unity. Student-athletes throughout the three divisional Student-Athlete Advisory Committees (SAAC) and the Board of Governors Student-Athlete Engagement Committee collaborated to create the national Unity Pledge and logo, a symbolic gesture to continue generating stronger unity among the NCAA's 1,100-plus schools and nearly 500,000 student-athletes.

    The entire GU men's basketball roster recently signed the NCAA Unity Pledge, as a way to bring student-athletes together to strive for better on their team, on-campus and in their communities.

    "We are happy and proud to be able to wear the 'unity patch'," Gonzaga's Joel Ayayi said. "As a team I think that it was important for us to make a statement using our platform. We need to fight hate with love. We are all in this fight."

    The logo includes three different colored hands holding one another's wrists inside a circle with "United As One" at the bottom. The mark was sent to all NCAA schools in the form of a patch to consider placing on uniforms.

    "We're so excited to show our unity as a team and as a school with the unity patch," GU senior Corey Kispert said. "Hopefully we can use this as a small step in replacing hate with love and ending racism in our country as a whole."

    Good for them. It seems that all should be able to support that.

    This a fantastic pledge!

    Too bad all of us throughout the country can’t live by this pledge...

    Spectacular. Few’s unique ministry is a shining example. Arguably the most diverse assembly of athletes year after year of any intercollegiate sports program in the country. If the winning is the Gonzaga Miracle, then that accomplishment is Gonzaga Miracle 2.0.

    Proud of the school and the players for this. Unity and inclusion should be a cornerstone of any great team, and not just among athletes.
